Light, Water and Sewer
Mayor Sammons reviewed Aston Oaks Lighting Assessment and the mechanics of it. We have not assessed for the past two years. Ron Nunnery stated the Assessment started in 1998 due to the Village needing additional revenue to install lights. The Resolution was renewed in 2003. The last assessment totaled 217 property owners @ $34.00 each annually. Some lights were damaged during the recent storms and Duke is repairing and charging the Village.
A discussion deciding whether or not to continue the Lighting Assessment continued.
Ron Nunnery proposed Eliminating Aston Oaks Lighting Assessment by Resolution 2012-25 and Bill Welch seconded the motion. Motion carried 100%.
